Would be nice to know what your issues are and something about what the everything that you tried was.

It doesn’t work; I tried fixing it; what can I do isn’t must to work with.

Not exactly sure what problems you're having, but this site has a lot of good information for getting Mach3 to work with a laser and they have Vectric post processors designed for lasers. https://jtechphotonics.com/ Look under upgrade instructions and software. Generally speaking, you set up Mach3 to use the spindle speed as an indicator of laser output and then when you set up a tool, you choose a spindle speed matching the laser power you want.
